It's impossible that the Wright thing helps
Obama, isn't it?

Maybe people will listen to Wright's words?

13. Can you imagine what's going on in the minds of that 13% who thought
Obama was a Muslim??? They must be thoroughly confused.

Of course, by next week, we'll probably be seeing that Wright's church is actually a Muslim mosque in disguise.

2. It's a little confusing that Obama has rejected Wright's words.

9. That's my point
much of what Wright said is true. The AIDS stuff is over the top, and the DAMN AMERICA stuff is horribly inflammatory.

6. I just don't understand how anyone can go around dictating what is possible and what isn't. nt

8. I think this is firing up Obama supporters MORE!
Just watching Obama on Fox. They are fired up!

Nobody knows how many black voters will turn out this Nov. But everyone agrees it will be huge!

10. A Clinton supporter friend
just called and brought it up as evidence that Obama is unelectable in the fall. He ignores that McCain actively sought the endorsement of a man who is deranged about Roman Catholics, and that the entirety of the religious right blamed 9/11 on Americans. Nope, Obama hung around with some dude with extreme views, so Obama is unelectable. Fucking Hillary supported the war for years, recently voted for war with Iran, but that's just fine.

At this point, if the race turns out to be between Hillary or McCain, it won't matter to me which wins, they are interchangeable.

11. There are a lot more patriots who will vote to keep God Damn Obama out of office
They will easily negate any extra black vote.Mccain will win by a landslide.
This is after swiftboating of course.

12. Agreed. I don't expect anyone to listen to Wright's words...
they should, but they won't.

I think this will galvanize the support of Obama once this blows over.

14. I think so. By the open minded anyway...
Edited on Sat Mar-15-08 09:10 PM by jmg257
I admit to being..put off...by the "damn america" stuff. But then I was left with this one question...

Why do WE, who mostly complain about this country - the country indeed being run by the rich (white) folks, KEEP VOTING FOR THEM?

The answer to that dilema is right here for us ALL to see, for ALL of us to get behind. It is so obvious, it can only be this...

It IS time for a change - time for someone whose REAL experiences just might be a little different then mine, who might care about things I forgot, or were ignorant of (I am not rich, but I am white), who just might see things I would otherwise miss. That person is Obama.

He is STILL the only real CHOICE, and not, once again, just "the lesser of 2 evils".

I don't CARE what the RW says, or what they MAY drag out. They will NOT dictate MY choice again! I WANT better this time! I WANT something new. I am SICK of what has become of this nation.

Having some hope is refreshing. YES WE CAN!
